In Harlequin's bead library you will find information on the history of beads, how beads are made and how beads have been used throughout the world.

Many articles include a bibliography to provide you with additional resources. Many of the beading books referenced are available at your local library, and we offer a number of books on beads and beading in our inventory.

We invite you to occasionally revisit this section of our website, as we are always expanding our collection of beading articles.
